Ingólfur Arnarsson

Ingólfur Arnarsson (b. 1956) studied at the Reykjavík School of Art, the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts and the Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht. Since 2000 he has been a professor at the Iceland Academy of the Arts. Drawing has always played an important role in his work; it renders thought lucid and endows it with form through means of lines and cross-hatching. Although his style has changed throughout the course of his career, features can be found in his earliest drawings that still characterize and unify his work.
